Pick up your Passport at the Wallingford Public Library and we’ll give you your first stamp. Then, take your Passport along as you visit other
participating libraries throughout the state and collect as many stamps as you can! CLA will be giving away a total of four $200 gift cards as prizes in two categories:

Category One: Each participant who visits at least five libraries will be entered into a statewide drawing. Prizes will be awarded, one each to a randomly-selected adult (18+) and child who visited at least five libraries.

Category Two: Each library will select the adult and the child who visited the most libraries. There will be a final “all libraries” selection (not a drawing) among the contestants who have visited the most libraries. Two prizes will be awarded, one each to an adult and child who visited the most libraries. In case of a tie, the winner will be selected via a random drawing.
